Bob Weir, founder of the seminal American rock and roll band the Grateful Dead, has been on tour for the better part of the past 50 years. On Thursday, a night after speaking with Syracuse University students, Weir took the stage again at Syracuse’s Landmark Theatre.

With his new band Bob Weir and Wolf Bros, a trio consisting of drummer Jay Lane as well bassist and Blue Note Records president, Don Was, treated the full house to a 2-set, 18-song performance. The show included old Dead favorites as well as covers from artists including Little Feat, The Temptations, Bob Dylan and Neil Young.

Harp player and Rochester native Mikaela Davis accompanied the group on a handful of songs throughout the evening.

The show ended with a sing-along of fan favorite “Ripple,” and though the only words spoken before leaving the stage were “Thank you,” their gestures of thanks and long gaze upon the crowd did more than enough to convey their gratitude to a faithful audience.
